Sherlock Holmes takes on Professor Moriarty in a Duel to the Death
26 December 2008 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Serving as a mid-season cliffhanger of sorts for the Russian Sherlock Holmes saga, Duel to the Death (or Mortal Fight according to IMDb) finds the sharp-witted detective following on the letter signed with an "M" made of swords that he received in the end of the previous entry by a woman whose husband died under mysterious circumstances. He discovers that the letters contain the member list of a dangerous criminal organization lead by one Professor Moriarty, the mastermind behind London's underworld. Following his discovery, the 221 Baker Street apartment is burnt, and Holmes with Dr. Watson find themselves on the run for their lives, seeking hideout in Switzerland. Climaxing with the titular duel between Holmes and a black-clad Moriarty (or is he?) atop the Swiss mountains and ending with a cliffhanger of sorts, this is one of the strongest episodes the series has to offer.
